"It's kind of a mixed team we've chosen. There's both guys who're going for the overall result as well as several who're able to go for the individual stages and we're also hoping to do well in the team time trial," comments team owner Bjarne Riis.

"Gustav and Chris will be trying for the overall result and we're quite excited about that of course. At the same time Chris'll have the chance to go for the white Youth Jersey, which Andy Schleck won last year. We also have a Grand Tour debutant with us in Anders Lund, who's done well and it'll also be interesting to see how he does under pressure. Jens and Stuart are there to build up their form towards Tour de France after they've both taken a break recently, but we know both of them well enough to know that they're able to win a stage or two at any given time. But that goes for everyone in the line-up – we'll be going for stage wins as soon as the opportunity comes along," concludes Bjarne Riis.
